Argument I overheard ('91 World Series)


Guy #1: The ’91 Series was the worst series ever.

 

Guys #2, #3 and #4: What? Are you crazy? OMG. Best. World Series. Ever.

 

Guy #1: The home team won every game.

 

Guys 2-4: So???? Like every game went into extra innings! Classic ending to game 6 on a homer by the Puck. Epic Game 7 extra-inning pitchers’ duel. Are you nuts?

 

Guy #1: Only Twins fans say it was the best series ever.

 

Guys 2-4: No, it’s been on ESPN, Peter Gammons, several sources rank it among the best.

 

Guy #1: Whatever.

 

So my question to you, loyal Twins fans, is: are we biased? Was ’91 truly one of the best ever or is our judgment tainted by our love for the Twinkies? The 2001 WS is a favorite of mine (mostly to see the Yanks blow it in the bottom of the 9th on a Mariano blown save)…but I believe 91, if not the greatest WS ever, definitely had the most epic finale in Games 6 and 7. But is Guy #1 right? Do fans of other teams agree that 91 was among baseball's best? Thoughts?
